4 stars Great Latin inspired symphonic prog.

Bacamarte are one of those rare prog bands that people don't know an awful lot about that releases one or 2 exceptional albums and promptly disappears off the face of the Earth and here we have a real gem in 'Depois Do Fim'. The music is great on this album, often quite triumphant and the musicianship is first rate - special mention must go to Mario Neto who is an absolute jazz shredder, who produces some of the best moments on the album.

The album starts off very strongly with 'UFO', beginning with some great flamenco inspired guitar work before moving into more gloomy territory before an upbeat harpsichord laden section then into the triumphant main part of the song - a very progressive and extremely well written instrumental (although it gets perhaps a little too triumphant for it's own good in places and does some a tad cheesy). 'Miragem' is another great track and is driven mainly by the guitar with some exceptionally melodic riff work and great intensity.

Depois Do Fim is a solid album full of good music, it just seems to lack that little push and that sense of cohesion and memorability that separates the great albums from the masterpieces. Fans of symphonic prog will certainly enjoy this, particularly fans of bands like 'LOS JAIVAS'.
